Some more art mail

I made another batch of collaged mail art. This is the last batch that still stems from my call for recipients a while back, so they are all taken already. It feels good to be able to send out a card to everybody who asked for it.

I'm not good at keeping up a regular correspondence with a few people, nor am I any good at doing those themed swaps that a lot of people are into. It's just too much like homework, haha

What I do love is to just make a batch of cards every now and then and have people to send them to. It makes me happy that people want to receive them and yes, sometimes they also send something back, but that's not the main reason I do it. I just love making these little collage pieces.

Here is each card seperately:

Now that all the original takers have a card I am thinking of a way to keep a sort of mailing list going where people will randomly receive a card from me if I make another batch. I will get back to you all on that when I have figured out how I want to do that.

I am curious though if anybody would be interested in such a thing. It would simply mean I put you on a list and in due time you would receive a card and at some point much later in time you would receive another one when it was your turn again. No promises on frequency or type of cards. Just kind of a surprise mail. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this.

For now I wish you all a wonderful and artsy day!
